Well, most will probably not be interested in this, but Aceeca has released details about two new PDAs that will run Linux (note that they also run WM -- ie you get a choice). The reason I say most people won't be interested is because Aceeca is kind of an odd company. They sell rugged and waterproof PDAs as far as I know, and previously sold only PalmOS PDAs. See their website here: http://www.aceeca.com/home/mez_comparison.php

The MEZ2000 looks like a powerhouse of a PDA to me with all the fixin's (although quite big). I guess if you're into kayaking or something and need to check your e-mail (wow, that's an odd scenario) this may just be for you. A little expensive too ($700), but it's basically customized for you (I think).

Let me just say that I know very little about this company, but just happened across their new PDA offerings and figured I'd jump on the bandwagon and report.

Well, I seem to have messed up Openbox by installing fluxbox. I installed the theme package in one of the threads and it felt the need to hijack my .xinitrc (I was going to have an xinitrc.fluxbox and a startfluxbox like I have for XFCE). Since I can't seem to find the default .xinitrc for openbox anywhere, could someone help me out and post theirs? It seems like a waste to reflash just when I got everything running perfectly when I could simply replace the .xinitrc (and although I could make a new .xinitrc and get it up and running, I'm not good enough to get it to the exact state it started in).

I would be eternally grateful if someone could help me out...(and I would make a backup of it in case this happened again!)

Well, I just got a Z (C3200) and am extremely happy with it. However, it has one very annoying quality. Every time (well, the vast vast majority of the time, anyway) I walk through the book detectors in a library that check for the tag in books it goes off. This happened very infrequently (ie once every 50 times or so) before I got my Z (I narrowed it down to either my phone, which can be on or off, or my Palm Tungsten T3, which was always off). But it happens about 90% of the time now, and so every time I want to leave the library I have to get someone from the staff to hand me my Zaurus after I walk through.

This may not be a huge problem to some people, but I'm a university student and I have to leave the library 2-4 times a day (which is VERY annoying when the alarm keeps going off). The Zaurus has been on suspend and fully turned off (ie "shutdown -h now" in pdaXrom) and it set off the alarm each time.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is there anything I can do (other than build a Faraday cage - lol)?
